Liposuction abroad – Fat removal in Prague
Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure for women and men that can help sculpt the body by removing unwanted fat from specific areas, including the abdomen, hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, upper arms, chin, cheeks and neck. Men typically want liposuction on their abdomens, chest (breasts) and flanks („love handles“). Liposuction is performed under general anaesthetic and the surgery takes 1–2 hours.
Overnight stay at the cosmetic surgery clinic is required – usually 1 night, which is already included in the price of your cosmetic surgery package. After the surgery you are taken every 2–3 days for a free check up to the clinic. Minimum stay in Prague is 4 nights after surgery (1 at the clinic + 3 in recovery apartment), recommended 7–10 days. Our Prague plastic surgeons use dissolving stitches, which do not need to be removed.

Liposuction (Fat removal) techniques:
- Traditional Liposuction – began in the 1970s.
- Ultrasonic Liposuction – also called ultrasound-assisted lipoplasty (UAL), was developed in Europe in the 1980s. Ultrasonic liposuction combines the application of high-frequency sound waves with gentle suctioning. Ultrasonic energy is directed from the tip of the cannulae of „liquefy“ the fat. The „melted“ fat is then suctioned out by the ultrasonic cannula or by a second cannula. This technique is used by our liposuction surgeons.
- External Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (EUAL) – ultrasonic waves are delivered through a rod that is inserted into fat. Ultrasonic energy is delivered to skin overlying the fat. Then liposuction is performed. Many liposuction surgeons found that this technique was not very helpful. Frequently, suctioning the fat after that application of the external ultrasound was no easier than if no ultrasound had been applied.
Liposuction and other cosmetic surgery procedures:
- Tummy Tuck – this cosmetic surgery procedure is advised for clients, where liposuction would not help, especially for clients with loose skin or lax inner girdles. Often the tummy tuck surgery is combined with liposuction.
- Upper Arm Lift or Thigh Lift – if your problem involves loose skin with poor tone, upper arm lift or inner thighs lift will be the best. If your problem is excess fat, then liposuction of arms or thighs is most appropriate.
Cellulite and Liposuction Surgery
Cellulite is a common but unattractive dimpling and puckering of the skin. Unfortunately, it is not improved through liposuction.
The Best Candidates for Liposuction (fat removal)
To be a good candidate for liposuction (liposculpture), you must have realistic expectations about what this cosmetic surgery procedure can do for you. It's important to understand that liposuction can enhance your appearance and self confidence, but it won't necessarily change your looks to match your ideal or cause other people to treat you differently. Before you decide to have cosmetic surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with liposuction surgeon.
The best candidates for liposuction are those with normal body weight who are near their body weight but have fat deposits that are resistant to diet and exercise. Your skin has to be firm and elastic. You should be physically healthy, psychologically stable and realistic in your expectations. Your age is not a major consideration; however, older patients may have diminished skin elasticity and may not achieve the same results as a younger patient with tighter skin.
The best time to consider liposuction is after you have stabilized your weight through diet and exercise. The results of liposuction are permanent in case you remain steady weight. If you were to gain a large amount of weight you might note rippling in the treated areas, depending on your skin elasticity.
Liposuction is not a treatment for obesity
In case you are obese and you would find a liposuction surgeon that would be agree to perform the liposuction surgery you are unlikely to have a pleasing or lasting result.
Preparation for Liposuction (Fat removal)
Pharmaceuticals containing acetylsalicylic acid (Acylpirin, Aspirin, and Anopyrin etc.) should not be used for 3 weeks before the liposuction cosmetic surgery, as they decrease clotting time of blood.
In case you are a smoker you are advised to stop smoking or at least to cut down on cigarettes. Smoking slows down liposuction recovery process and it can also increase a risk or complications.
Operation – Liposuction (fat removal)
Before the liposuction surgery plastic surgeon will mark the areas to be suctioned and may mark areas to avoid. Liposuction is a cosmetic surgery procedure, which consists of suction of accumulated fat through thin tubes, which are connected to a vacuum system. Only small incisions are necessary to introduce them, so any scarring will be virtually invisible. Liposuction is performed under general anaesthetic.
Once you are asleep, liposuction plastic surgeon will make several tiny incisions around the areas to be treated. Using a long metal rod, about the diameter of a pencil, but much longer, your surgeon will inject tumescent fluid into your fat layer. Afterwards the liposuction surgeon will use a liposuction rod to remove fat cells. At the end of the rod there will be a suction machine attached, which produce a vacuum. Our Prague liposuction surgeons use dissolving stitches, which do not need to be removed.
It is a few years that we are using the ultra fine ultrasonic liposuction method in our liposuction clinic, which is not harmful to the skin grain or any other tissue. Using the Vibrasat device, we are able to aspirate, in a much gentle manner, a considerable amount of fat from very fine, almost imperceptible points, without damaging the subcutaneous layer. In that way there are limited negative side effects, e. g. post-operative bleeding, swellings or strong pain of treated body parts. On top of that, vibrations of the equipment stop signs of cellulite in the skin grain.
Post-operational Course – Liposuction (Fat removal)
You will usually remain at the liposuction clinic for 1 night and will wear a special compression bandage, which is already included in the price of your liposuction abroad with Beauty in Prague.
Garments worn after liposuction are essential to achieving good results following liposuction surgery. If you do not follow the instructions of liposuction plastic surgeon and do not wear a properly fitted garment, you may have baggy, lumpy, irregular, and uneven results. You will have to wear this garment for 4–6 weeks after the surgery. After a month it is no longer necessary for the underwear to be worn at night.
Our Prague liposuction plastic surgeons usually use dissolving stitches, which do not need to be removed. After 1–2 weeks, the patient can return to everyday activities, avoiding strong physical efforts. Any bruising and swelling will usually dissipate within a month.
Bruising or inflammation of the treated area is common, but this will disappear over time. Results will become more visible over time as the loss of volume and skin re-modelling is continuous and gradual. A significant improvement in the figure and body shape will be achieved. The patient should rest at home for about a week.
How will I feel after the liposuction (fat removal) surgery?
You will probably feel tired, sleepy and suffer from pain especially in 1–3 days after the liposuction surgery. You will be given some painkillers and tablets for reducing the swelling. Your liposuction surgeon might also prescribe antibiotics as a prevention of any potential infection.
You might also feel unhappy after a few days. This is normal and is caused due to the stress, general anaesthetic, lack of patience with the healing problems, more pain than you expected or the fact that because you underwent liposuction abroad you miss your home and family.
Some clients suffer of constipation. We advise you to bring some gentle medication or you can buy it in Prague.
Is the liposuction (fat removal) recovery painful?
According to our client’s experience they did suffer from a pain. However, when you will be leaving the liposuction clinic you will be prescribe painkillers by the liposuction surgeon. You will probably feel discomfort, swelling, heaviness, and numbness in the areas where liposuction was performed.
Possible Risks and Complications – Liposuction (Fat Removal)
Liposuction carries slightly higher risk for individuals with medical problems such as diabetes, significant heart or lung disease, poor blood circulation, or those who have recently had surgery near the area to be contoured.
However, the specific risks and the suitability of liposuction for a given individual can be determined only at the time of consultation. All surgical procedures have some degree of risk. Minor complications that do not affect the outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are rare.
